*Hekiou Academy Student Council Meeting Log*
“… I am Kaicho (president), I am KaichoO! By the way, does the president do anything?” – excerpt from episode 11’s ending theme.
What happens when four pretty girls and one handsome guy spend most of their school time everyday in a confined room? Naughty thoughts aside, if you were thinking “oh my god, not another harem” then you were right! Seitokai no Ichizon is NOT a harem, strictly speaking (though our male protagonist tries very hard to make it so). In reality the poor dude gets bully by his female mates more than he ever deserves. So who might this anime be good for? If you are looking for a parody that pokes fun at itself and the entire anime industry in general, then Seitokai no Ichizon will surely meet and most likely exceed your expectation! In fact not only does it do a good job with the too-frequent parodies, but with high quality animation, and impressive new ending themes every episode, Seitokai no Ichizon is a great anime for all ages.
The story of Seitokai no Ichizon centers around the everyday “adventure” of the student council in Hekiyou Gakuen high school. Its setting primarily consists of one place, the student council room, although exceptions do occur in the show from time to time. Now you must be wondering, what can a show that limits itself to one cramped room has to offer? Surprisingly the answer is, plenty. With plenty of jokes and plenty of parodies targeted at other recent well known anime, there is never one boring moment in the show for viewers to complain about. Even if the story itself does not attract the viewers enough due to its random episodic events, but by combining the story with the character interactions, nice consistent animation, superb voice acting, and addictive soundtracks and theme songs, Seitokai no Ichizon has some of the deadliest combination to make it stand on its own ground.
It was interesting for the characters to repeatedly admit that “nothing ever happens” in their show. And yet they never fail to entertain the viewers with what they can do to make the show appealing solely by chatting. In fact, it is hard to judge these characters in any normal anime standard because they are out of the ordinary. As the casts themselves have put it, “This is where we end after airing twelve episodes? … The main character is supposed to mature after a time (but) … nothing changed.”. They poke fun at their own lack of character growth, but in actuality most characters have had their fair share of developments through learning about each others’ past or family problems. The characters certainly made a positive impact to the overall success of Seitokai no Ichizon due to their unpredictability.
The animation is nothing but greatness. The characters are very nicely designed and even the one and only classroom is very detailed in design with a large variety of decorations and hidden rooms. Fluid scene to scene transition, consistent high quality animation, and a great choice of “scenery” also made Seitokai no Ichizon very attractive to the eyes. Additionally, comedic-like faces on the characters whenever a random chat start appearing also helps crack people up. The animation definitely is another strong point that makes up for the lack of story.
At first I was very skeptical with the seiyu in this show because all the main female leads are apparently voiced by rookies. Yes, they are ALL rookies. New to the anime industry, these female seiyu all tried exceptionally hard to make themselves stand out as a bright star. Unfortunately they were all excellent in voicing their roles so I could not say who seem to be the most talented (unlike in other shows where one can clearly tell some seiyu just don’t go well with the particular role at all). It is, however, quite clear that these voices bring life to the characters in the series and bring entertainment to the viewers.
Special honorary mention goes to the ending themes. Whether they are good or not, one must admit it was creative of the producers to make a unique ending song (same rhythm different lyrics) for each episode thus resulting in a total of TWELEVE ending themes. Even without the lyrics (and I strongly urge you not to miss them), the songs in itself is tremendously addictive. In fact, I could dance around my room all day with the song set on repeat in my computer. The opening, while less catchy, is still very pleasant to hear and once again it showed us the talents these new seiyu possess.
Seitokai no Ichizon is a wonderful addition to the anime industry and made itself stood out among the mist of millions of other similar anime largely due to its parody at poking fun at itself and everything anime-related. The jokes are never too old or too repetitive throughout the show and the references are relatively simple to grasp (provided you are semi-familiar with recent anime). Keep in mind the show is made in Japan and is intended for Japanese viewers who most likely have a more knowledgeable database of the anime series in Japan than we do. If you don’t seem to be able to spot a parody or two in an episode, chances are, you have already missed out on some of the jokes they are making fun of. In that case, you should reconsider whether to continue watching the series or not. Lastly I would recommend anyone who have trouble at school, whether it is your grade or having trouble making friends, to try playing love simulation games (ie. harem games)! read more
"What happens when you have 4 beautiful girls,a good-looking guy,a student council,parodies & comedy?Yes,you are right,the answer is HAREM,oh,no I mean Seitokai no Ichizon.This anime is a parody so you better be prepared before you watch this anime.Watch other anime it parodies or else you won't understand the jokes in a better way"
There isn't a linear plot in this anime i.e. each episode begins & ends randomly.The student council consists of 5 members.The first 4 student council members are chosen by votes.The top four who get most votes gets to be in the student council while 5th spot is for the student who gets most grades.We have our 4 beautiful girls Aka-chan,Mafuyu,Chizuru & Minatsu who got their positions due to being well-liked by everyone while Ken who got in council simply by his hard work & good marks but his reason of joining it or more like the motivation of all of the study he did is........only to form a harem.Sounds pretty generic,doesn't it?but it isn't.In fact it is better than most of harem anime I have seen.
Almost the whole show occurs in a simple room which is obviously student council where all the members have fun almost all the time & do work only if they really have to do it.Afterall,They are not a ordinary student council.The majority of the show is spent in doing parodies of other anime like Lucky star,Suzumiya haruhi,Death Note,etc with reference of some others like baka test.
There are also Mafuyu's crazy yaoi fantasies like she wants Ken to end up with her imaginative Nakameguro-kun or with his nii-san,who of course do not exist.These parts are really funny & you will be laughing really hard even if you are against yaoi.
Often Ken mentions this student council to be a place of his dreams,a harem only to be beaten up or to be shut up by the girls.There is also a journalism club that likes to degrade council by spreading false news lead by Lilicia but that is only for comedic reasons.
8/10 since the plot is very random.
The art of this anime is very clean & beautiful.It is not rushed & each area is explained carefully.The characters designs are also drawn beautifully & they look awesome.
The backgrounds are also very impressive.Since most of this anime occurs in a single room so I am amazed how they end up not making this room look boring.Most of time is spend in student council so it is described very well.There are also some scenes outside of the school & they still manage to do it impressively.
There isn't a moment in this anime where I found the characters' proportions weird plus I don't think so that I have seen this much of a single room before,lol.
So,9/10 for its awesomeness:)
Opening & ending songs do not feel anything memorable when you hear them for the very very first time but they will gradually grew in you,especially the ending song.The opening song may sound boring at first but by the end of it you will be already trying to download it.The ending song is actually one of my favorite.It is very funny especially "I am Kaichou" one is awesome & you will be laughing very hard.
I didn't noticed the BGMS very much since I was too busy laughing but the ones I noticed were nice.They are suitable to the mood the scene is trying to give.
Voice acting is done very well.All of the female voice actors have done a good job.I especially liked Ken's voice actor.He has put great effort on his flirty side.Even when he cries,it almost feels like he is really crying.You can see the effort being put into it.
Now this is the department where this anime truly shines.At first you think that "Oh no,this anime consists of usual archetypes." but as you see more of it you realize that are different & are explained rather well,a thing some other anime lacks.It feels like all of them can understand each other.Even the side - characters in this series are not boring.
Chizuru is a sadist who is very mature but there is an evil side to her.She loves teasing others as much as she loves our main heroine aka chan.
Aka chan...is well....aka chan,the usual bubbly,loli & childish kid,errr,I mean girl(sorry aka chan)who wants to make the student council the best one in the world.
Have you ever seen a tomboy who is good in maths or any other subjects?If not then you will see here.Minatsu is a tomboy who is good at maths.She likes action manga & is the strongest one in the group.Also she has a bit of yuri taste(I didn't really wanted to say it,err....anyways).
Mafuyu may seem like the usual underclassman who is kind to other but can't make friends but here comes the difference.Even if she can't make friends she doesn't care about it,She is not like the usual,"Oh,I can't make friends" type of girls she is different because she doesn't care about it & is happy with her seitokai friends.Her BL love is absolutely entertaining.
The main character,Ken himself isn't boring either.In fact he is the most interesting main character in an harem or in this case HAREM-LIKE anime I have seen.Ken is a KINDHEARTED pervert who likes to play H-games & wants to make student council his harem simply because he loves happy endings due to an incident involving his girlfriend(I won't spoil it for you further)
I like how the creator has took risks on her/his characters but they have come out really well.10/10 for this outstanding choice.
You will really enjoy it since enjoyment is one of the prime factors of this series.You will love the comedy & the jokes in this series.This is one of the best comedy series out there after all.If you can handle the little yaoi moments here & there then you will absolutely love it.Also remember to watch other anime before which it parodies to get a better idea of what is happening.
Have fun & enjoy!!!^_^
Both are about a Student Council with all girls save one boy, whom they are often giving a hard time.
Both revolve around a male student in the student council. The only difference is that in Ichizon, the male has dirty thoughts and with Yakuindomo, the girls have dirty thoughts.
The two anime's are rather similar to each other because they both deal with a funny Student Council , where all the members are girls except for one guy. And the comedy in it is mostly the student council talking about stuff.
one of the big differences in this is that in Ichizon they show more ecchi scenes whereas in Yakuindomo they talk about ecchi stuff .
i enjoyed both of them allot and i think that if you liked Ichizon you'll probbly like Yakuindomo
A Student Council with all girls and one guy, but the only difference is that in Sitokai no Ichizon, the guy actually wants a harem while in Seitokai Yakuindomo, the guy tries to avoid being in a "harem"
Harems and student counsels
Both about the student council. In No Ichizon the guy is always thinking of perverted things but, in Yakuindomo it's all the girls that think of the perverted stuff
Both series are about Student council with one guy and girls
The plot is similar with joke and some parodies, perhaps some dumbness of the student council's president as well
Both focus on a Student Council for a school. Both have 1 boy in the Student Council who are both the vice president
Pervy Student Councils are fun. Oh so very fun. Main difference is where the "perv" is in each seires. Seitokai no Ichizon has a pervy male, Seitokai Yakuindomo has pervy females. Did I mention they both have lolis? Both situations, the male suffers |D
its both fun. but yakuindomo is more adult .
Both have stories set in the school counsel, with 1 guy and many girls, many anime parodies, sex talk (the male in Ichizon, all the girls in Yakuindomo). Ichizon has fewer ero jokes and slightly more plot, but otherwise the two are very similar
Both anime are comedies involving student council, but are not purely about what the group does. Both anime are joke based. 'Seitokai no Ichizon' being a parody style anime with jokes about harems, while 'Seitokai Yakuindomo' is a comic-strip style anime with jokes that are explicit and sexual in nature.
Essentially the same series with the gender reversed. Both series premises are held in the student council and both are light-hearted comedic series.
Student Councils, both involves a guy surrounded by beautiful girls etc. :)
Both of them take setting in student council, with only one male student and some girl students. While Yakuindomo focus on dirty jokes and slapstick, Ichizon got some nice parodies and a little romance in it.
not exactly same, since Seitokai no Ichizon contains harem portion, but if you want to watch jokes...
Tone down the perverse nature a tad
Have the male protagonist being perverted
Add more girls
and you have Seitokai no Ichizon.
If my brief description was not enough to convince you, at least watch an episode or two so you can decide for yourself.
Both are sitcoms featuring a boy in an all-girl student council with no particular plot and random jokes
Student council + harem + a lot of comedy
Well it has the same similar settings as the main character. It has the same overall feel and atmosphere of the animes. Both animes are really funny and easy to get into.
Seitokai no Ichizon seems to have a more parody like comedy with well re-used jokes. There is a lot more moe in this anime as well.
Seitokai Yakuindomo has more comedy based on mature "things" but its still nonetheless friggen hilarious.
They both have a female-dominant cast. They both take place in a student council. They both have "Seitokai" in their names.
Both have LOL moments. In both, the male protagonist was part of the Student Body Council for different reasons. And the female cast for both love to mess around and make jokes. In a way, the Student Body Council sometimes takes there work seriously and the other times, have fun like the teenagers they are. Seitokai no Ichizon has more drama, and Seitokai Yakuindomo has more comedy with mature jokes XD
Cute girls in school comedy, the same sense of homour and a lot of parody.
Being a parody show, seitokai no ichizon is made with the full awareness of lucky star. The first episodes steals a few screens from lucky star as the show is fully expecting the viewers to cross over. To not have seen LS is to miss the very language of the show and its references.
Cute girls and it parodies other anime.
Both are parody and reference anime. The club thing isn't there, but its moe and loli all the same.
Seitokai no Ichizon are much inspired on lucky star. Both have a group of 4 main girls (In Seitokai no Ichizon plus a male in group), much anime parodies, mainly for suzumiya haruhi. School life and slice of life themes also.
Also, Seitokai no Ichizon parody lucky star.
When i saw the anime, I quickly thought "it's so much like Lucky Star", they both have anime parodies and no plot. :P lol, really fun to watch!
Seitokai no Ichizon has the same silly humor and a load of parodies (that aren't censored out :D) If you're looking for a nice, new, light-hearted anime, this is for you ^_^
Both animes are pretty much plotless
Both have a lot of female characters
Both have tons of moe
Both have a lot of parodies of other animes
Both have some really funny moments :3
These anime are both really random and they both have a lot references.
These two shows are very similar in the make tons of references and give great laughs for all true Otakus.
Seitokai no Ichizon have a lot of parodies of others animes, as Lucky Star. The two animes are very funny ^^
Both with lots of anime references, with many from Suzumiya Haruhi. The characters for both shows fall into the moe genre. Both are very light-hearted and funny shows with little to no plot advancements.
Ichizon also had a direct reference to LS.
A bunch of girls making liberal use of meta-humor and making references to other anime.
